Conversations with the Inspiring Lisa Lewtan - Boston Voyager

Today we’d like to introduce you to Lisa Lewtan.

Lisa, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
After co-founding a successful tech startup, I collapsed from years of stress overload. Using the skills I had developed as an entrepreneur, I self-hacked my own mind and body to restore my health go on to feel better than ever. I now help other successful hungry go-getters to slow down, chill-out, develop a better relationship with food and stress, look good, and feel great.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I have been an entrepreneur since I was 23 years old. I didn’t have mentors or co-workers to hang out with since I was the boss. This was very lonely and was one of the factors that led to my eventual burn-out. I highly recommend that you surround yourself with a smart, supportive team of advisors and cheerleaders either within the workplace or outside. Currently, I am part of a small mastermind group with 3 other coaches. We meet monthly to share ideas and support each other. I can’t recommend it enough.

What should we know about Healthy, Happy, and Hip? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
As a former tech entrepreneur that crashed and burned, I bring a uniquely practical and strategic approach to my health and lifestyle coaching. With a best-selling book, Busy Stressed and Food Obsessed!, a radio show/podcast – Healthy View Radio, and the experience of running workshops, online courses, and retreats, I have helped thousands of women learn how to stay sane and healthy in our crazy 24/7 demanding world.

Do you have any advice for finding a mentor or networking in general? What has worked well for you?
Just mention your desire to everyone you talk to. A few years ago, I asked a fellow coach if she knew of any mastermind groups for me to join. A few months later, she decided to form one herself and asked me to join.

How to Avoid Burnout in Business and Life with Lisa Lewtan

Today, I am chatting with a good friend and amazing health coach who goes by the name of Lisa Lewtan. Outside of being an award-winning author, Lisa is probably known best for being an expert on stress. But interestingly enough, she became an expert on stress because of her beginnings in the tech world.

Lisa actually started her entrepreneurial journey at the age of 22, where she co-founded a successful tech company. But like many entrepreneurs, she burnt out. As we all know, the stress of owning a company can catch up on you—and it caught up with Lisa in a big way.

After taking some time off and restoring her health, Lisa ended up creating her own health and wellness company called Healthy, Happy, and Hip. She has since become a stress-master, and we’re going to talk about how to combat stress as an entrepreneur—something I’m sure we can all relate to. We’re also going to dive deep on the negative aspects of social media and what you can do to stay in your lane. There are some essential lessons for any entrepeneur in this episode, and trust me, you really do not want to miss it.

Busy, Stressed and Food Obsessed - Lisa Lewtan on A Healthy Curiosity Podcast

Calling all those who have ever felt busy, stressed or food obsessed – this podcast is for you! Today I’m speaking with Health & Lifestyle Coach and author of the award winning book, “Busy, Stressed, and Food Obsessed!” – Lisa Lewtan. She shares wonderful insight into the correlation between being busy and stressed and how it can impact our eating habits. We discuss the importance of recognizing and understanding some of the emotional triggers and habits that lead us to food for pleasure as well as the ability to work past these feelings through meditation and thought control.

Through private coaching, online courses, workshops, and retreats, Lisa helps highly successful hungry go-getters to slow down, chill-out, develop a better relationship with food and stress, look good, and feel great. She has been featured in numerous publications including The Boston Globe, The Huffington Post, MindbodyGreen, and Better After 50, and has been a speaker at companies such as Canyon Ranch and Google.

“We’re using “busyness” to hide other things about ourselves. We tend to define ourselves by the things we are doing rather than just who we are.” – Lisa Lewtan

On Today’s Episode of A Healthy Curiosity:

  • Are we wearing our “busyness” as a badge of honor?
  • Being aware of the language around the word busy.
  • Balancing the “have-tos,” the “wanna-dos” and the “shoulds.”
  • How the stress of being busy can lead to food obsession.
  • In a fight or flight situation, where do we flee to mentally?
  • Do we really know what it feels like to be biologically hungry?
  • The process and benefits of interrupting habits.
  • How does stress, worry and self-doubt relate to self-love?

Key Takeaway:

  • So many times when we think we’re hungry, we’re really not – we’re just not present with where we are.
  • Why are we so busy? Do we have to be busy? Do we want to be busy? Do we feel like we should be busy?
